|Email item||Print item||
There are four Good Friday Processions taking place in Gozo: Nadur, Victoria, Xaghra and Zebbug.
These will commemorate the Passion of the Christ by a very solemn procession of statues, with each of these statues represents a particular episode in the Passion of the Christ and is carried by pallbearers.
As part of the procession there will be participants dressed as biblical characters between each of the statues, which normally number around ten. The processions may also include men in penitence bearing a cross and sometimes dragging chains, which are tied to their bare feet as penitence.
